Queen of the Nile slot review
Queen of the Nile slot is one that land-based casino players will have seen all over the world, particularly in Australia and New Zealand. It is one of the original free spins slots and the inspiration for the mega popular Cleopatra slot from IGT. Australian slots developer Aristocrat have used the format for Queen of the Nile on many of their slots, and it also led to a sequel - Queen of the Nile 2.
Queen of Riches
Queen of the Nile slot is set in ancient Egypt when Kings and Queens ruled over the country. The symbols in this slot game include the Golden Ring, the Nile Thistle, the Scarab Beetle, the All Seeing Eye and the Golden Pharaoh. Complimenting the picture symbols is the card symbols 9-10-J-Q-K-A, which offer slightly lower payouts. There are also two bonus icons, which are the Nile Queen Wild and the Pyramid bonus scatters.
Queen of the Nile slot is a medium variance slot by developer Aristocrat, meaning that you will get wins more often, but they will typically be average in size. Hitting a huge win on Queen of the Nile is quite rare, so if you see wins closer to 30x your stake then you are probably doing quite well.
Queen of the Nile Free Spins Bonus
The free spins bonus round in Queen of the Nile slot is triggered by getting 3 or more bonus scatters (pyramid symbol) on any of the 5 reels. This will give you 15 free spins at 3x multiplier, which has the ability to re-trigger. You will find that there are not long waits before getting through to a bonus round, which is quite a buzz when you here the ringing bell alarm when triggered. However, the reward from the bonus round can be a little disappointing.
Queen of the Nile slot has been the blueprint for many other video slots, but these days the game is looking a little dated. This could be said of some of the older Aristocrat slots, which all have a very similar designs and sounds. They must be popular with players though, as Aristocrat released Queen of the Nile slot online to much fanfare and it joins the enjoyable 5 Dragons slot, the oriental-themed Choy Sun Doa and the superb More Chilli in that regard. This Egyptian queen is all about nostalgia for me and I return to it when I want a trip down memory lane, but nothing more than that.Review by Gamingslots
